November - Tea light cards

It's very nearly the end of another crafting year at Busy Bees... the last monthly class for 2011 will be on 26th November and we will be making Tealight Cards.  This project is being led by Jackie.

There will be a choice of two - Holly and poinsettia for the traditionalists, and a cute decoupaged birds layout for those who like their Christmas more contemporary.  Samples are shown below, but of course, they can be decorated as much or as less as you like!

Dates for next year have been booked and have been listed on the side panel.

October - Christmas Cards by Debbie

Our October project is a Christmas card, and a gift token card by Debbie.

These cards will involve some stamping and colouring, matting and layering and we will make paper flowers.

The main card has a diecut element which was mounted on plain card, and the stamped bear image was placed on top.

The paper flowers were used to provide an accent, and the sentiment was made from the same card as the roses.

The gift voucer was made from A4 card, and was scored at 10 cm, and 20 cm.  It was folded so it would fit into a DL envelope.

The Exterior of the card was layered with toning paper and a small bear topper was stamped and coloured with promarkers.  Diecuts were used to further decorate the top.
